Montmartre Mysteries

Poor mystery but interesting slice of French life. I enjoyed entering the world of a wine expert within France. However, I think there are rules for mysteries that Montmartre Mysteries broke. There was no way for the reader to solve the mystery as crucial information was not given until theContinue Reading

Great Unique Christian Fantasy. I only picked up this book because I enjoy the author’s Jason Strong detective stories. This book is a Christian fantasy. I have read many more mysteries than fantasies and only read about ten Christian books in my entire life (all Christian love stories) so IContinue Reading

Force of Nature cover pic

Great characters in an absorbing paranormal romantic mystery. This was a good paranormal romantic mystery. Maybe it’s because I have read so many mysteries, but Force of Nature seemed rather easy to figure out. However, I loved the characters in the book–each had their own voice, motivations and quirks. TheContinue Reading

Breakout cover pic

Compelling short read. Highly recommended! Usually I don’t like short stories because they are either slice-of-life character studies with little plot or characterless stories with a “surprise” twist at the end. This story in contrast has just the right amount of interesting characters and action-driven plot. It is rather amazingContinue Reading

Roseblood cover pic

Good short thriller. I read the author’s second book, Breakout, before this one and to be honest that one was better. Still Roseblood held my interest for the half hour it took me to read it. I enjoyed it a lot until the end, which I didn’t like.Continue Reading

Secondhand Souls cover pic

Waded through this book to a good ending.  The previous book in the series, A Dirty Job, was much better and is highly recommended.  Secondhand Souls: A Novel not so much. This book has almost the same plot as the first book in this series, A Dirty Job. Though theContinue Reading

Canada Under Attack cover pic

Little known history of America attacking Canada! Canada Under Attack is an interesting story of Irish-American Civil War veterans, the Fenians, who decided to invade Canada to force England to free Ireland. I wonder how many pints it took to dream up that scheme (don’t hate on me–I’m also Irish-AmericanContinue Reading

Turner cover pic

Great scary read! I truly loved Turner. It reminded me of the feeling I got reading The Exorcist and The Omen for the first time years ago. It was straight up scary (though I did read it at night in the dark on my Kindle after everyone else was asleepContinue Reading

Badlands cover pic

Great Atmosphere and Characters! The atmosphere in Badlands is extraordinary. I live in the high desert but the descriptions of a North Dakota winter were so effective that I actually got a blanket to use while reading it. I also enjoyed Kyle as he was a most unusual protagonist. MostContinue Reading
